I wonder how many people they suckered into getting it, expecting an awsome pnp experience and then they were told by assholes "dude0r, teh game is 4 teh online play."
How in the hell did you expect to get any sort of a PnP experience without a DM?
NWN wasn't sold as an "online rpg toolkit designed to let players make games."
No, that's not a fact. 3/4 of the hype about the game was the Aurora toolset. Hence the release of it before the game shipped. Also notice the back of the box.
It was well known by the gaming community that the big deal was the DM part. If you didn't know this, then you must have been living under a rock for the last four years, or simply didn't research the game before you bought it. Did you think they released TWO guides for the game just for fun? No. They released it because half the game was modules.
Anyone that expected BG3 wasn't looking at any previews, they were looking at the word "Bioware" on the box, and thought that it would be a typical Bioware game.
but at $80 (NWN + Shadows) I should be getting a game that makes Fallout or Planescape look like Paper Mario...
I don't care if it was even $200, or a million for that matter. If you expected on any level for Bioware to top classics like Fallout or Planescape then you were only tricking yourself, and it was no one's fault but your own.
Maybe you should actually stop rushing out to buy games simply for their developer.This comment was edited on Jul 2, 16:36.
